Take Care at Such Eating Places

When dining at any of the mentioned fast food joints or other similar establishments, it is important to keep a few things in mind:

1. It is advisable to carry your own water bottle or choose packaged drinking water. The water provided by these eateries may or may not be diluted and clean. Additionally, the drinking glasses may not be hygienic.

2. When indulging in fried foods like Vada pav and Samosa, make sure to eat them only when they are served hot right in front of you. Stalls that are less crowded or food hawkers standing alone may not offer healthy and fresh food options.

3. Avoid drinking cutting chai in plastic cups. These cups can be dangerous as the hot tea can react with the low-quality plastic used, potentially causing health issues such as cancer.

Stay mindful of these tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable dining experience.
